This research deals with an analysis of Safety Management System performance (SMSP) in a military aviation organization which is the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF). Specifically, the scope of analysis addresses the factors of Organizational Identity (OI), Organizational Behavior (OB) and Situational Awareness (SA) and how these affects the SMS Performance. The interest is to investigate whether Safety Culture (SC) plays a significant mediating role that affects the SMSP. The study population consisted of pilots and engineers from different air bases throughout the country. The results indicate that OI, SA and SC showed significant impact on the RMAF’s SMSP. However, Safety Culture was found to have a significant mediating effect only for Organizational Identity and Situational Awareness.
